The roaring twenties

NY, NJ and CT

Recently, I've been loving weddings that have a subtle 1920s theme, featuring drop-waist gowns, jazz music, and speakeasy-inspired cocktails. The perfect place for just such an affair? The new Edison Ballroom, recently opened in New York's Time Square area. Housed in the space formerly occupied by the Hotel Edison's Supper Club, the bi-level space has been completely renovated--to the tune of $5 million—but still retains the venue's original Art Deco flavor. The swanky venue features three bars, a stage, and a lounge area, and can accommodate up to 500 guests. —Lauren Matthews, Associate Editor, Brides Local Magazines
